Remote Buddy

Filed under: Setup — jny @ 0:29

We have been running Remote Buddy in evaluation mode for a few days now. So far I’ve only used it with EyeTV, VLC and iTunes and for putting the computer to sleep so the testing hasn’t been too thorough.

I haven’t experienced the wow-effect I got when watching the videos on the homepage. For example the preferences dialogues are too big for the TV resolution of 720 x 576 pixels and I’m unable to operate it as smoothly and quickly as in the videos.

Nevertheless, the extra control you get with the remote just is so useful, you cannot be without it. And the Apple remote is more predictable than the one that came with EyeTV.

So it looks like I will buy it.
